Education Budgets Flat, Group Complains

Written by
According to an analysis by the nonpartisan Wisconsin Budget Project, Governor Scott Walker and the Republican led legislature have proposed a budget that doesn't provide much in the way of new resources for the state's public schools.

Tamarine Cornelius, with the organization, says what's really happening is the additional funds for public education promised in the budget will be delivered in a way that won't allow district to put that money to work educating public school students.
 
 
 

 

Cornelius says the complexities of the school funding system in Wisconsin make it difficult for the average person to understand, but according to her, Governor Walker actually is giving the money as a tax cut.

College Ready for Presidential Visit

Written by
History will be made today as President Barack Obama pays a visit to UW-L.........a first ever by a sitting president. And though the speaking event was supposed to take place last week, UW-L Chancellor Joe Gow says he still had to be hush hush when the event was rescheduled. And since UW-L has hosted prominent figures in the past..........the white house felt safe having Barack Obama there today.
 
 

 

If you weren't one of the few thousand that got a ticket for today's event or your just unable to attend, you can listen to the broadcast live on 1410 WIZM-AM. It is scheduled to begin at 1:20. It  also will be available as a stream on the WIZM website, 1410wizm.com.

Court: More Evidence Needed in Child Death

Written by

More evidence from the state crime lab may be needed before any decisions are made on a trial in a La Crosse County child abuse case.  An August 10th hearing has been scheduled now for Jaymie Rundle of Holmen.  Rundle and her boyfriend are accused of physically abusing the man's three-year-old daughter to the point where she died late last year.  Examinations of the girl's body indicate repeated signs of physical injuries, excessive salt consumption, and extreme starvation.  The girl's father, Dylan Bartsh, already is scheduled for trial next month.

Kind: Boost Overtime, Boost Economy

Written by

A plan to allow more Americans to be paid for overtime may be the centerpiece of President Obama's speech, when he comes to U-W-L today.  The Obama visit has been advertised as dealing with the economy.  Congressman Ron Kind says the economy could be helped by an expansion of overtime pay.

Kind says Congress should schedule a vote on the overtime proposal, rather than leaving Obama to take credit or blame for it.

Suddenly, Overtime Changes the New Black

Written by

The president isn't the only one calling for expanded overtime pay.  President Obama apparently will make increased eligibility for overtime a cornerstone of his talk today in La Crosse.   Democratic state senator Julie Lassa, meanwhile, has introduced a bill that would do the same thing in Wisconsin.  The president's plan calls for increasing the income limit for overtime to over fifty thousand dollars.  Which is what Lassa's bill would do.  The senator from Stevens Point says Wisconsin's overtime laws are so out of date, many occupations making more than nine thousand dollars a year aren't eligible for overtime under state law.

Segway Vote to Bring New Wheels to City Hall

Written by

Don't be surprised to see La Crosse police riding around on their own Segway scooters soon.  A city council committee tonight considers buying three of the scooters that were just the subject of intense scrutiny in city hall this spring.  Two of the new Segways will be used by police and one by the city's public works department.  It was the city's police chief earlier this year who opposed Segways being used either on streets or the sidewalks in downtown La Crosse.  The three Segways will cost the city close to 24 thousand dollars.

Couch Porch Debate Returns

Written by

Couches on porches again the focus of likely debate by the La Crosse city council tonight. A council committee considers a proposal to keep indoor upholstered furniture from being placed on porches, decks and balconies, along with other, similar structures. The council considered the same proposal last month but tabled it after several council members claimed the planned ordinance just didn't make any sense as written. The fire department says the ordinance is necessary as a fire prevention measure.
